1.) The first step will be taking your chicken breast and flattening them out. To be honest, I do this with my fist just punching down on the chicken breast with my knuckles flattening it out. Trust me it’s not violent and take much less punching power than you think!
2.) Now once you have your chicken breasts all flattened out, you will need to grab 3 shallow bowls to serve as coating stations for the chicken breasts. Add your flour and seasonings to one bowl. Then add your panko to another bowl. Lastly, add your eggs and franks red hot sauce to the last bowl and whisk.
3.) So now it’s time to dredge the chicken breasts. In my chicken nuggets recipe, you see me using the dry hand/wet hand technique. But here we must use two hands at all times because these are big chicken breasts! So take one of your chicken breasts and dip it into the flour covering all sides. Then dip it into the egg/hot sauce bowl covering it like you did in the flour. Then dip in the panko doing the same process. Add to a cutter board/plate to hold till you add to your air fryer. Repeat this process for all 4 chicken breasts.
4.) I had to do this in 2 batches because my air fryer could hold 2 of the chicken breasts each time. So spray your air fryer tray with non-stick cooking spray and add 2 of your chicken breasts. Spray the tops of them with your cooking spray and then cook at 360 degrees F for 9 minutes total. At the 5 minutes mark, you will flip the chicken breasts so they cook evenly.
5.) Once done, now it’s time to make your sandwich! Slice each chicken breast in half and top each with a slice of your colby jack cheese. Add back to the air fryer for 3 minutes on 360 degrees F to melt the cheese! If you have a tooth pick, add it to the cheese to make sure it does fly around in the air fryer!
6.) Once done, take out and put together your sandwich and enjoy!
*You will want to use 100g of All Purpose Flour but you will have a good bit left over. When I did this recipe, I had 80g left in the bowl. But to be safe, I added another 20g to the total.
And throwing these spicy chicken breasts inside a crunch wrap is a fire way to use them as well!
